Well yeah just like the title says, I was at work yesterday and when I went on break I noticed my car didnt want to start, or even turn on. It was the battery, So I popped the hood, disconnected it, then reconnected it and everything was cool. When I got in and turned it on the RPM guage started going haywire and kept at 7K, then I restarted it and it went down to 4K, I did it again then it was back to normal( wierd huh?) I hope and beleive the battery drained because of my fan control module since it stays on too long sometimes after turning off the engine.
And another question how hard is it to replace the fan control module yourself? B/C I dont know if MAZDA will do it for free sice I dont have any papers for the car(warranty)

The gauge cluster going nuts is common when your battery is on its last legs, don't worry about it. As for what killed your battery... the CM could very well be the culprit, also compounded by leaving your lights on to auto-shutoff if you do that. Buy an Optima Yellow Top, expensive but worth it and made to take the pounding of discharge-recharge.
